The "title" field is not editable and doesn't appear on the editing page, yet it shows up (with old content) when viewed at the above link. Jess would like to be able to edit or delete that field so that she can update it with current information.

Hi Keith - This is by design. The Title field has been superceded by the Positions field. We only continue to show Title if Positions has not yet been filled in. Once at least one Position has been provided, Title will no longer show. Please let me know if this works.

Awesome! Thank you Boone, she reports that your suggestion fixed the problem. I'm marking as resolved for now...BUT...

What do you think about adding some bright red help text that explains this somewhere on the edit page if the old title field is non-empty and the positions field is null? I'll add this as a new ticket if you think it's worthwhile.
-for future reference, it would help if the help/tooltip contained the word "title" explicitly, and possibly included the existing text. this way the page is quickly searchable for someone looking to change that field.

Hi Keith,

Can you please create new tickets for the two suggestions you've made here:

  • help text that explains this somewhere on the edit page
  • help/tooltip contained the word "title" explicitly,
